Why not use a spoon?

^Kristy's so close, they don't stir coffee with there hands, they stir it with a spoon.

^Well, the answer I was looking for was fruit and vegetables, but I guess that's right too.

If the average eskimo eats 10 walruses in a lifetime, and one walrus is equivalent to five and a half penguins, how many penguins would an average eskimo eat if he couldn't get any walruses?


Yes

Probably none, unless they import some from Antarctica.

(Seems like most of your riddles are trick questions )

Stoffe gets my question right.

^Is it a dream?

How many new, uncreased US$10 bills, measuring 5 inches by 2 inches, could you fit without an overlap between pages 33 and 34 of a hardback book measuring 10 inches by 6 inches?

Correct.

If there were eight crows on a wall near a shepp pen, and the farmer shot one, how many crows would be left?

Akuma: You are incorrect. This is something else that I have made reference to. Is the answer to yours 7?

Eight.
The farmer shot one of the sheep, not one of the crows?

Okay here's my second and final guess on this riddle:

One. The dead crow would stay there, and the other seven would fly away?

EagerWeasel gets the point. Yes My mind is void but also composes things that you don't want to know about. That is where I get my infamous diddies that have people laughing, especially Jae about "free food."

Here is my next riddle:
I live in a place that is dark and damp. Beware, you just might want a lamp. Under a place where the parties begin, I dwell alone in my pen. They tell you to watch out when I speak. I sometimes want a hug, pretty please

@KotO[REvan] - You got it, one, the others would fly away.

@JM12 - The troll that lives under a bridge?

Dave was trying to match four different coloured pairs of socks which had come out of the washing machine. There was a blue pair, a red pair, a green pai and a yellow pair. Unfortunately Dave is completely colourblind and could not differentiate between them, so he paired them randomly. What is the probability that exactly three pairs matched?

Because if three of the pairs matched, the other pair would automatically match as well.



There's a bit of the shadowy side in all of us.

^Yep.

After passing her driving test, Sally was on her way home, feeling very pleased with herself and not really concentrating on where she was going. She went straight over a zebra crossing and the wrong way up a one-way street. Her driving instructor and a passing policeman saw her but didn't bat an eyelid. Why?

^Yep, she walked.

Hearing a funny gurgling sound from the kitchen, I went to investigate, and found I had left the water running. The floor was rapidly becoming a miniature sea, and, although there were six sponges, a mop and a bucket and a covered floor drain all within reach, I couldn't think what to do first. What should I have done.?

When johnny went for a walk with his dog, it didn't walk in front of him, behind him, above him, below him or to one side of him and he wasn't carrying it. Where was it walking?
